Twitter has added a pinned conversations feature to its Direct Messages (DM) service for iOS, Android, and the Web, allowing users to pin conversations to the top of their inbox. Even if newer messages from other chats arrive, pinning conversations keeps them at the top of the chat list.
The feature was previously available as part of Twitter Blue, the company’s paid subscription service that provides early access to new features before they are made available to the general public.
On Friday, the microblogging service announced that users can now pin up to six conversations to the top of their DM inbox on Android, iOS, and Twitter for Web.
When you pin a chat, it is moved to a new section called Pinned conversations, while the other chats are listed under All conversations.

Pinned conversations are a feature found in several popular messaging apps, including WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Google’s and Apple’s Messages apps, and Facebook Messenger, which all allow users to pin conversations to the top of their chat list. The microblogging service is the latest to add the feature, and it comes shortly after it acquired Slack competitor Quill in December to help it improve its messaging tools.
